Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy will be limited to 75 pitches per outing this year. That didn’t get him very far Thursday.
The right-hander, starting at High-A Frederick, was pulled after surrendering a pair of singles in the fourth inning. He exited having allowed three earned runs in three innings during the Keys' game against Salem.
Bundy gave up five hits while striking out two batters and walking a pair.
Thursday was Bundy’s second start with the Keys, after making three appearances for short-season Single-A Aberdeen. He has yielded six earned runs in 7 2/3 innings with Frederick (7.04 ERA).
Bundy, who made two relief appearances with the Orioles in 2012, is rehabilitating from Tommy John elbow surgery last June.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the right-hander’s pitch limit wouldn’t prevent him from making an impact with the club this season, but he warned that the Carolina League might present Bundy some challenges.
